NIPSCO Energy Efficiency Plans

Northern Indiana Public Service Company’s (NIPSCO’s) electric utility is offering energy efficiency programs under IURC orders issued in November 2014 and December 2015.

In the most recent case, the OUCC recommended denial of NIPSCO’s request to recover lost revenues and shareholder incentives through rates. The IURC order denied shareholder incentives. It approved the recovery of lost revenues through customer rates, capping the recovery at a 4-year period.
